Bruce Pearl

Coach Bruce Pearl and his staff continue to rebound nicely from losing All-Americans Jabari Smith and Walker Kessler. Earlier this spring the Tigers signed five-star Yohan Traore, a 6-10, 225 high school senior from Tours, France, who played at Dream City Christian in Glendale, Ariz., this season. Assistant coach Wes Flanigan was the lead recruiter for the Tigers with Traore.

Last weekend the Tigers added 6-10, 235 transfer Johni Broome, who picked Auburn over a Who’s Who list of college basketball powers. Steven Pearl was AU’s lead recruiter for the defensive player of the year in the OVC at Morehead State, a guy who averaged 16.8 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.9 blocked shots per game.
